Cincinnati Bengals 2015 Draft Preview - KernGoldenEmpire
One-and-done playoff appearances are starting to get old in Cincinnati but Marvin Lewis remains in good standing, recently receiving a one-year contract extension. To get the Bengals over the hump, a few tweaks are needed and it all starts with the 21st overall pick. Cincinnati has two very good tackles in Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith but both will be entering the final year of their contracts and Whitworth will be turning 34 over the summer so it may be time to look toward the future.

Mocking on the door
The NFL Draft used to be a private gig. Only members allowed. BYOB. They’d hold it in a speakeasy around a hideaway corner and maybe you’d get an invite and maybe you wouldn’t. The password to get in didn’t have to have eight letters and a number. It was something like, "Blitz," or "Hike." Now, of course, it is its own three-day weekend, pulling ahead of Columbus Day and giving Labor Day a flat out run for its money in a 40-yard dash on the American holiday turf.  It is a bash, an extravaganza, an orgy of hype, celebs, gossip, and numbers. It all starts Thursday night, slobbers into Friday night and wakes up groggy Saturday morning to finish it off.

The left tackle position and the right tackle position are crucial to an offensive line’s success, so having a quality, blue-chip guy at those positions is wise. The problem with this year’s draft class is that it really doesn’t have a top, standout guy. Out of the three best tackles in this draft class in Andrus Peat, La’el Collins, and T.J. Clemmings, many believe that the prospect with the highest ceiling is Peat.

Bengals 2012 draft: What scouts said
On the map that highlights the route of the current Bengals' resurgence – four consecutive playoff berths, the best regular season record in the AFC North – the first push pin, the starting point, is without question the 2011 draft. Such consistency is never about one class, and the followup group from 2012 has been just as important.

Joe Flacco on wide receivers: I think we’re good with what we have | ProFootballTalk
At different points this offseason, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and Assistant General Manager Eric DeCosta have both downplayed the team's need to draft a wide receiver after Torrey Smith signed with the 49ers as a free agent. Quarterback Joe Flacco joined the chorus on Saturday.
